    I suggest that you do not go by assembly number and also not by chassis number. Rather go by exact day of build start. As you know some cars were built without an assembly number and/or received much later an assembly number, sometimes totally out of sequence, so even the assembly number is not key.
    You also have to keep in mind that some of the early prototypes were sold much later to private clients and only then received an assembly number (sometimes a rather high number).
    Between 12 June 2002 and 20 December 2002 the construction of 67 Enzos started. The first of these was chassis 128011 with assembly #57950 on 12 June 2002, the last of these 67 units was chassis 131240 with assembly #48403 on 20 December 2002. Here you can already see that a high(er) serial number may have a low(er) assembly number.
    Or you can go by body number (for the regular production cars). Here the problem is that after the first four (4) Enzos (body #1, 2, 3 and 4) they started again with the same body number 1, then 2, then 3 and then 4, etc. And then the same again with the U.S. version.........
    That's why I usually go by lowest and highest chassis number.
    Overall, it is quite complicated and there is no perfect logic. Typical Ferrari. Always a drama. No perfection, and hence lots of emotions. But that's exactly why we all love it so much.
    Just don't try to apply our 2020 standards where everything is supposed to be perfect, bulletproof and logic.
    No such thing exists in Maranello. That's the magic.

    With "beige" you mean Cuoio 4609?
    If that is what you mean then it is 8 (eight) such cars, Rosso Corsa 322 with Cuoio 4609.
    Plus at least one further Rosso Corsa Enzo which has been retrimmed by the factory from original Cuoio 4609 to Nero 8500.

    No, I specifically mean Beige 4208, which - for unknown to me reasons - is considered Extracampionario/Not Standard at least in early production stages...

    Thank you for this very informative post! Would you be so kind and double-check assembly numer of 131240? I have ass #48367 in my files. Ass #48403 belongs to VIN #131241.

    You are correct.
    131240 = 48367. Build start 18 December 2002. Completion date 6 March 2003. Body #11. Rosso Corsa.
    131241 = 48403. Build start 20 December 2002. Completion date 25 February 2003. Body #12. Giallo Modena.
    I realize that this is a small correction (re 131240) to my post #1827. Thank you Maciek for making me aware of my typo. Apologies.

    One of the highest assembly numbers for an Enzo is 59819 which is chassis number 133197, rosso corsa. Build start 10 May 2005, completion date 10 June 2010, Body #361.
    On the other hand the highest chassis number is 141920 with assembly number 59050, build start 29 March 2005, completion date 28 July 2005, rosso scuderia, body #357, engine number 91280 and gearbox number 532.

    Correct completion date for 133197 is 10 June 2005. Not 2010.
    Apologies.

    Thank you very much Mr. "mechaniker".

    There are actually 6 original Grigio Titanio Enzos... That particular car was new to Italy and has been in the UK for quite some years now.

    No it isn't/wasn't...the "AG" car has a different interior/tacho and was last connected with Germany!
    As also written on DK's homepage, the car in question was in Italy before it came to the UK...
